Karen Huger Donates 4,000 Masks to Healthcare Workers on the Front Lines of the Coronavirus Pandemic
"It's an opportunity for me to protect you while you fight for us," the RHOP cast member said.
Karen Huger is showing her gratitude to all of the healthcare workers on the front lines amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member recently donated medical masks to MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Her donation was matched by RPGSHOW, with whom Karen launched a wig collection last year, for a total of 4,000 masks for the Washington, D.C. hospital.
Harvey Green, vice president and Chief Philanthropy Officer at MedStar, and Ayris T. Scales, the District of Columbia's Chief Service Officer under Mayor Muriel Bowser, thanked Karen and RPGSHOW for their donation during a ceremony at the hospital earlier this month, which was captured in a video on the RHOP cast member's Instagram.
Karen said during the ceremony that she was "honored" to be able to donate 4,000 masks to caregivers during this crisis. "It's an opportunity for me to protect you while you fight for us. Know that we greatly appreciate your effort, your tireless effort, and your sacrifices. They do not go unappreciated," Karen said at the event. "Also know that I wish for you that you stay healthy, and God bless each and every one of you. Thank you so much."
Karen has been active in helping those affected by the coronavirus pandemic. She previously offered support and resources to sexual assault survivors during this difficult time in an Instagram Live conversation for PAVE, a national nonprofit that works to stop sexual violence and build communities to support survivors for which she has served as an ambassador.
